Carlos Condit Says He Always Tries To Finish The Fight

Twenty nine year old Carlos Condit did a recent interview and here are the highlights:

The important of avoiding decisions: “[Finishing fights is] important to me. With judging being as screwy as it is these days, that’s definitely a concern. We train to finish, and luckily for me, that’s just kind of my fighting style.”


Taking the risks needed for the finish: “I don’t have to do much different than what I already do. I just kind of follow my instincts and get the finish very regularly.”


The prospect of bonuses for finishes: “I don’t think I would fight any differently if there wasn’t bonuses. But it’s a great perk.”

Condit is 29-7 and coming off a win over Martin Kampmann in August. He is set to face Tyron Woodley at UFC 171 on March 15 in Dallas, Texas.

The headliner is Johny Hendricks taking on Robbie Lawler for the welterweight title. This could be a number one contender fight between Condit and Woodley.
